. be right back. chris: welcome back. when hillary clinton made big news this week with her video endorsing same-sex marriage, clinton watchers out there put it side by side with another hillary video announcing her official candidacy for president back in 2007. here they are side by side. first from 2007. >> after six years of george bush, it is time to renew the promise of america. our basic bargain that no matter who you are or where you live, if you work hard and play by the rules, you can build a good life for yourself and your family. throughout our history as our nation has become even more dedicated to the protection of liberty and justice for all, more open to the contributions of all of our citizens, it has also become stronger. chris: and to some reporting, if she is running, there is a groove in washington called no limits. it's one organization that has been keeping hillary clinton's millions of supporters in touch building for a potential run. kathleen, here is what you right in the "washington post" this week, "i have asked a half dozen close clinton associates if she is runn
? when does that shift so it goes back to the clinton era, if hillary chooses to run? when does that shift take place? >> as a president goes through a second term, interest in the president starts to go to the congressional wing of the party. what obama is trying to achieve for his legacy does not necessarily line up with what congressional democrats are interested in, in making a distinction between who they are and republicans. i want to reinforce democrats are not in as bad as a shape as republicans. the democrats really are not attached to obama like republicans were to reagan. when obama ran, he ran against the establishment of a party. he did not have a "democrat" on his bumper sticker. his identity was to be separate from washington. he did not campaign for democrats. his appeal is less transferable for democrats going forward than they did for a type of who had been elected like bill clinton. >> that is what becomes a case in the democratic party? >> you guys did a great job. jimmy carter was president four years, but you made him the party for 16 years. [laughter] wasl
hillary clinton was doing. >> and barack obama. that was the administration's stated goal. the real answer is that the middle east, regardless of whether the united states achieves energy independence any time soon, the middle east is a geopolitical center that is not easy to pivot away from. i think that daunting list of challenges that you just ran over suggests why that is. i also think if you look at what senator-turned-secretary kerry's agenda is, you get the sense of this is still very much a political figure. he spent 29 years in the senate which prizes a kind of face-to-face diplomacy, if you will, the handshake, the look 'em in the eye. that was a mission that then senator kerry often undertook for barack obama when he was the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. he went to afghanistan. he met with karzai. i think this is a somewhat familiar role for him. it's very different, by the way, than the way that hillary clinton used her time and credibility in the job. >> ifill: whether it's syria or what we just saw in afghanistan or whether it's worrying about the red li
-sex marriage. hillary clinton, who if she wants to run in 2016, she's going to -- she's in favor of same-sex marriage. any democrat who runs has to be in favor of it. republicans at this point still undecided. >> it's a more dicey territory. quickly, it's amazing to me that people forget, president obama, then senator obama, and then senator clinton, both oppose gay marriage and supported civil unions in the '08 presidential campaign five years ago. now, it's march madness so the tournament is over for me after georgetown. but the good thing is, i still have senate madness. i have the nbc political unit, i can still focus on a bracket and not shed tears. tell me where we stand. >> four match-ups we want to point to today. the 1-16s versus the 8-9s. and ted kennedy, our overall number one, the legislator versus lloyd benson who won our play-in match-up. >> benson beats graham. >> benson beats graham. and lots of votes online, almost 1,000 votes, maybe more. so everyone get out and vote today. and robert byrd versus tom daschle on the other side. so robert bird who did so much for west vir
& jerry's and bernie sanders. >> it's no accident to me, chris, this began to shift with bill clinton. bill clinton very much made it his mission to move the democratic party, quote, to the middle. you know, that was the democratic leadership council. they're not going to give up on the south. even today bill clinton is obsessed with this notion of the sorting out of america. he's always referring to bill bishop's book. when i saw clinton the other week, he mentioned it to me. meaning the country is disaggregating. if bill clinton stood for anything, it was to try to end that kind of thing. he didn't succeed, but he began to lay the groundwork for the type of campaign barack obama ran and won two elections on. >> fascinated by this moment. >> yeah. >> he came up to you, the former president. >> we were talking. >> kriz mcharismatic gentleman. he came up to you and said, howard -- >> he mentioned it out of the blue. there was a reason for that. we were in kentucky talking about the possibility of somebody like ashley judd running and is it possible for kentucky to get a democratic mess
secretary of state hillary clinton getting on the right side of history in her view and the view of her party coming up with a video changing the clinton view on doma and in the republican party, we're hearing from all across the spectrum that regardless of what the supreme court does the party needs to have a more libertarian view on this. republicans are telling us it would be a huge help with fund-raising especially in the big states of new york, california, and florida. if the republican party were to be more open on this. and people are telling us that investors don't want to invest what they think losing national elections which could continue to be the case if republicans stay very narrow on this issue. republicans i talked to even extremely conservative ones, very christian conservative republicans are telling me the polls they have seen in the last couple of weeks have been eye-opening, showing not only that young people very heavily in favor of gay marriage, but if you extrapolate that a little bit in just 10, 20 years, this is going to be 70/30 issue that republicans are goin
this whole idea that josette talks about the smart power and hillary clinton did a lot of work on that as well to know what is going on in other parts of the world and be inspired by that. the protest and wisconsin on the collective bargaining issues there were young people holding up signs that say what why egyptian was a great way of showing that global connected mess. it's going on at the same time and was young people hanging up the signs having that solidarity's of that is a good way of thinking about on both ways both from the west to other countries and other countries back to the west that people are being inspired by their goebel peers. >> host: there has been criticism that young people haven't been engaged in politics in meaningful ways and maybe their engagement feels cursory or superficial. is that fair? >> guest: i don't think that's fair. if you look at the last cycles. the enthusiasm i would characterize in 2012 versus 2008 in terms of the number of young people going out campaigning and the number of people who are attending rallies was definitely decreased, bu
. >>> sea change? first, the president. then, the new message from hillary clinton. tonight, hear the famous republican making news on abc's "this week," with his own prediction, just as the supreme court takes up gay marriage. >>> the jackpot. what we've learned about the one winning powerball ticket. and that much bigger bite. with those higher taxes on the rich, we reveal what the winner will have to leave on the table. >>> and shark tank. tonight, we now hear from the team on that boat. the newlywed who thought he was protected in that cage when the shark breaks right in. >> whoa. >>> good evening. and thanks for joining us here on this sunday night. we begin with that fierce storm this evening. more than half of the country in its path before it's over. this video just in tonight from orlando, florida. look and listen to this. extreme winds blowing right through those front doors at a lowe's store. blowing shopping carts like they're toys. you can see the heavy rains outside. and in the west tonight, the storm dropping more than a foot of snow in parts of colorado and moving on to kansa
in camp david in the year 2000 with clinton as the witness, the israelis offered a division of jerusalem for the first time ever. that is simply factually wrong. the israelis have offered this, and arafat would not sign. the question is would anybody sign an agreement that accepts a jewish state, and for six decades, the answer has been no. >> 2008, different administrations in both israel and the united states, and the case and the reality is you cannot have israel existing as a single state without facing demographic distraction. that will change the entire character of israel. it will repeal the jewish values that have animated israel. that is to me, the real incentive. >> you cannot make peace if the other side wants to see nothing but your eradication. if that changes, there will be a peace. >> republicans engage in some self-criticism and rand paul offers an immigration plan. >> there is no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we were not inclusive. >> the chairman of the republican committee. why did mitt romney lose in 2012? the republican n
to iraq since hillary clinton in 2009. it's his first visit since he came as a senator at the height of the civil war in 2006. arriving today in secrecy, in the week when iraq saw some of its worst terrorist attacks in years to mark the tenth anniversary of the war. but kerry did not come primarily to discuss iraq. despite the smiles for the cameras, the secretary of state confronted iraq's prime minister maliki, accusing him of colluding with iran to prop up the assad regime by permitting almost daily weapons shipments from iran to syria through iraq's airspace. >> we had a very spirited discussion on the subject of the overflights. i made it very clear to the prime minister that the overflights from iran are in fact helping to sustain president assad. and his regime. >> reporter: iraq denies it but u.s. officials say there are far too many flights. plus intelligence that iranian weapons and fighters are also moving overland through iraq to syria. it is called survival in a tough neighborhood. >> for maliki a rebel victory in syria he fears will empower his political opponents in ir
. as john said, follows hilary clinton, i have big heels to fill. thank you for your work in san francisco. the city has a great person to run this city. finally i have to thank kathy. cameie brought in an incredible amount of enthusiasm and hard work to the office. most of all tammy cares about the district and never stops thinking about how to make it a place to want to live there. thank you. with that, i'm excited to work with the members of the board, the mayor and the rest of our residents and family to make this a great city. [ applause ] . >> we have two moments for any questions from people, otherwise we can go and get the work of the city done. thank you. [ applause ] . >> the garden contains plants referred to by william shakespeare's plays and poems. located near the academy of sciences, shakespeare's garden was designed in 1928 by the california spring and wild flower association. here is a truly enchanting and tranquil little garden tucked behind the path of a charming rot iron gate with romantic magic. the overarching cherry trees, the gorgeous big walkway and brick wall, the
the palestinian government. and lo and behold after we made the bold move with president clinton at camp david in the summer of 2000 we got the second antifattah and buses blowing up in the hearts of jerusalem and tel aviv and all of our major cities. over a thousand israelis killed. and as a result of a security situation that emnated from a poorly implemented peace process. now, i think israelis feel that we have to be past the arafat era and be in a new era of mutual recognition and real security and that is why prime minister netanyahu as he tries to make peace with the palestinians and the rest of the arab world will insist that any agreement we reach must be based on firm security grounds. >> mike: there appeared to be a thawing of what obviously had been a frosty relationship between the president and prime minister netanyahu. all of that is well and good anda you hope to see a warmer and more cordial relationship. the real question, do the israelis feel more confident that the united states will step in and do anything necessary to keep iran from having nuclear weapons? >> that is an e
heard him say this about former presidents. former president clinton founded the clinton global initiative. jimmy carter got involved in habitat for humanity. all the former presidents, including his father, got involved in raising money for haiti. he's going into painting? little difference in your post-presidential interests in life, wouldn't you say, victoria? nothing wrong with painting but most former presidents seem to have some broader, more global, more humanitarian interests. >> you're absolutely right, reverend. but what i'm detecting here is laying low. let's not forget when president george w. bush left office, he left office with a 36% approval rating. a couple months before that he was at 25% approval rating. so he's just laying low, either for his own good that he wanted to get out of the public eye or his brother might even be asking him to keep out of the public eye. this new emphasis on painting, good for him, paint on. but let's go beyond that, as you said, let's try to remedy what you did in the decade before. >> but behind every dark cloud there is a silver
this bold move with president clinton in camp david we got the second entafata. and over a thousand israelis killed as a result of a security situation implemented from a poorly implemented peace process and the israelis feels we have to be past the arafat era and most of all real security and that's why prime minister netanyahu as he tried to make peace with the palestinians and the rest of the arab world will insist that any agreement we reach must be be based on firm security grounds. >> mike: there appeared to be a thawing of what obviously had been a rather frosty relationship between the president and prime minister netanyahu and all of that is very helpful and good. you love to see a warmer or more cordial relationship. the real question, do the israelis feel more confident that the united states will step in and do anything necessary to keep iran from having nuclear weapons? >> that's an excellent question, governor because in our private discussions, this subject has come up. sometimes we have a warmer relationship with an american president and sometimes a colder relationship and o
of that this, whole idea that joseph nigh talks about the smartpower and hillary clinton did a lot of work on that as well. that culture and ideas and the ability for people to know what is going on in other parts of the world, and be inspired by that. there's a lot of that going on in terms of exchange of ideas between global piers and the ability for -- during the protests in wisconsin, on the collective bargaining issues, there were young people holding up signs that said, walk like an egyptian, which i thought was a great way of showing that global connection. those people were inspired with what was going on in the arab spring around the same time, and there was some kind of -- young people holding up the signs, having that solidarity. so that a good way to think about the ability on both ways, both from the west to other countries and other countries back to the west, that young people are being inspired and engaged by global peers. >> host: there's been criticism that young people have not been engaged in politics, in meaningful ways, and maybe their engagement feels cursory or supe
wrong, and it waw not only wrong during the bush administration, it was wrong during the clinton administration. if you look at theti intele the very end of president bill clt's administration, they were talking also about saddam building up his w.m.d.s. >> rose: what was the error ofwa intelligence? why did they believe that? >> it was a tbawrl off imagination-- it was a failure of imagination. i was writing about the intelligence at the time and i myself thought some of it might have been valid when i was writing about it. really what happened is saddam cooperated with a letter of the united nations demands. he let inspectors go here and there, but he never cooperated with the spirit of it. and he was trying to maintain ambiguity over what he actually had. because he was concerned, first and foremost biran, which doesan have w.m.d., and he was trying to repress his own population. he had used poison gas against the kurds. he didn't want internal factions to know he didn't have it. he maintained a big of ambiguity about it. and even hans blinx wrote he thought he must be having
in this country. when you look from president obama to president clinton to hillary clinton to rob portman to dick cheney, cleric mccaskill, jon huntsman. there are a tremendous number of federal officials, highly visible people in both parties. not only saying people should have this right, which is the moral position, but also saying something that i think creates an incredible opening for the public which is i changed my mind. people get in different ways. but that is also really different. in the civil rights era which is obviously the sort of historical precedent that people look to. the court was way out front. sometime in unanimous decisions like brown, in school busing, obviously in a lot of areas of extending rights to minorities. they were way ahead of both parties. you go back to the original civil rights raer and both parties were table because we lived in a completely racist, elite structure. and so the court was really one of the only elite institutions in the country that ran against that. while i understand the broader context, i think this is a supreme court that by that historica
made clinton, bush and obama ineligible for the presidency because of marijuana arrests. we'd have to reimagine president paul songis or president mario cuomo. now we're in kornacki land. those are not horrible options. what wants to choose a president from a list of guys who were young in the '60s and 7 os i'70 so stiff and frumpy they never tried it? arrests, for possession, not for sales, and for possession of marijuana, not harder drugs. why are we still conducting the war on drugs? criminalizing weed smokers, militarizing police and spending trillions to stop nothing. in the '70s, most criminalnolol experts concluded prison does not significantly deter crime and those with meaningful life opportunities were less likely to engage in crime regardless of the penalty, while those who went to prison were far more likely to commit crime in the future. prisons don't prevent crime. they create criminals. and america has the highest rate of incarceration in the world. what are we doing? happy monday. and now, my friend and yours, karen finney in for what's his name. don't tell me. don'
as between one man and one woman. signed into law in 1996 by president clinton who now supports the overturning of that law. at least one of the nine on the court has a personal connection to this issue, chief justice john roberts has a cousin from san francisco who is a lesbian and reportedly wants to marry her partner. she will be in the room as roberts guest during the prop 8 arguments. so will cc cnn senior analyst jeffrey toobin who will prep us on that, the author of "the oath." jeff, thanks for being here on "the lead." you're the lead on "the lead." there are a lot of legal issues and torts. but for you this comes down to one question. >> both cases, same question -- can the government, in giving out benefits, whether it's taxes, whether it's marriage, whether it's child custody, say gay people get one set of benefits and straight people get another? can gay people get less? those are really the questions in both cases, and the court has never really answered that question clearly. and we should know a lot more tomorrow. >> and in terms of court watching, we know that th
a man and a woman. it comes just days after former secretary of state hillary clinton released this new video, supporting gay marriage. >>> and tonight, a well-known architect of republican strategy is making news after weighing in on the issue right here on abc's "this week." i want to bring in rick klein with us. you saw this, too. here's the straightforward answer from karl rove when george asked him this morning. >> karl rove, can you imagine the next republican candidate saying flatout, i'm for gay marriage? >> i could. >> he quickly moved on to another issue right after that. but, rick, rove's team knew this was making headlines. and they reached out to you before we came on the air tonight? >> that's correct. an important distinction that karl rove wants me to make. he sent me an e-mail, while he could see a republican candidate supporting gay marriage, that's not necessarily saying the nominee will do so. but here's the thing. the politics around gay marriage are changing and changing fast. it's been less than a year since president obama himself dropped his opposition to gay ma
covered the white house since the ford administration. he decided that the beginning of the clinton administration that he needed to keep track of the statistics about the president's movements and the number of times he played golf, the number of fund raisers he has had and how much money has raised, just about anything you can imagine. he does this by stating the logs every day. he remains there until 8 or 9 every night. he has the most complete record is that exists. if the white house has a question about a number, they will see what his number is. he is meticulous and we are thankful -- they will see what his number is. caller: thanks for taking my call. my question is how much opinion from the different main media sources becomes confused as news. i would like to hear your opinion about fox news. it is apparent to most independent and open minded people that not only are their stories skewed to the right, they are talking points and almost every issue is turned into a scandal, is turned into more reasons to disrespect the president. i appreciate the media challenging the white
the chance to come up with the idea with the clinton the eye or the disappointment something going on that has nothing to do that we're talking about that stops you from doing your assignment but i cannot do that unless i am with you. those of the changes i see and they worry me. >> host: finally, with your book "always on" u.s. the question how much to blame that can be laid at the feet of technology themselves? >> i do. with thin ice example of what i believe is the case my students are lousy with punctuation they don't have a clue what to do with us ; or:or a, a sprinkle them like croutons on a caesar salad. it is not their fault they say they rely on spell check. but kindergarten through high school did anyone really focus on spelling? no. because the faculty is thinking i need to focus on other things to be of modern skis. it is not the students' fault. if we change expectations of goals in education instead of reflecting were being by yourself and thinking and reading for a long period of time with no distractions if students don't know how to do it is not technology's fault,
bill clinton came in second, nearly $1 million, followed by george hw bush at $850,000. costs for jimmy carter, the only other living president came in at about $500,000. >> twitter coe -- ceo gives insight into the world of social media. >> that is right. emily chang is here with the after the bell report live on location tonight. hi, emily. since becoming ceo he helped trance form the company into a global communications power whous a steady revenue stream. here is what he had to say in the field of social media. >> i think it's fair to say that we don't let other company decisions affect the way we think about where we're going. have you to understand the competitive landscape and know what other people are doing souk be thoughtful about whether you need to move faster or prioritize this over that in a particular quarter but... in the general scheme of things in the vision of where we're going we don't let those other things change our notion of what we're appearing to be. >> ask early in the day stocks lower your bloomberg silicon valley index shares of oracle and ebay weighing ther
dianne feinstein, but also lindsey graham and others. like at hillary clinton, al franken, elizabeth warren the senate is different. you get to the senate and people hold their head down for like the first six years. they move they are a work horse not a show horse. ted cruz is not like that and i think it's only a matter of days before he steps on his you know what? >> michael: yeah, he went over to mary landrieu's desk here 4:00 am -- after he tied china and the un and abortion together and reprimanded him, and then she walked away and supposedly he was just sort of chuckling as she walked away. >> the senate for better or worse, i guess we still have to call at it gentle person's club if you will. unlike the house they really treat themselves with respect and that counts for a lot. that's why cruz's attitude flagrantly just violating all of the rules of decor um and respect for other members has turned people off on both sides of the aisle -- the worst of the tea party. the worst of the tea party. >> michael: it's incredible and maybe the state he comes from as h
so we can offer u.s. assistance. going back to last summer. hillary clinton, the head of the c.i.a. agreed to set up a program to vet and support. vet first, support and shape the opposition that was emerging. the president said no. with people worried in syria and critical of the white house taking a step back approach, one is it will engulf the region. secretary of state john kerry going to iraq and pleading with al-awlakpleadingwith al-ma. we have a u.s. weapons and troops to defend saudi arabia. we have a u.s. official acknowledging that the uptick in vehemence iraq is from the militants who have al-qaeda links who are fighting in syria. then we have a problem with the opposition where we have stepped back. there are al-qaeda linked militants. a troubling situation. >> you mention that kerry has been meeting with al-maliki and what they said about whether or not they are allowing the air space used by the iranians. >> anything that supports the president assad is proble problematic. i made it clear that iran are helping to sustain president assad and his regime. >> shannon:
president clinton signed in 1996 which bans federal marry i marital bs for same sex couples legally married in their states. you said that states have the right to de. to the is conservative isn't marriage a state issue and federal interferences wouldn't that be unconstitutional? >> i don't think so and neither did a democratic president. a lot of people are changing their minds because there has been a full court blitz by the popular culture by elites, by all kinds of folks to intimidate and cower people and no longer defend marriage as being between a man and a woman. >> chris. >> chris: go ahead, nicolle. >> chris, chris, the biggest problem that mr. bauer faces not just this morning but moving forward is that more than 65% of his own base self-describing evangelical christians under the age of 33 support marriage eequality. 80% of people in this country right, left, democrat, republican, man, woman, support marriage equality. more than 60% of all americans everyone supports marriage equality. and that very same activist court that he railed against with such hostility this morning alway
passed by congress and signed by president clinton in 1996, is being challenged at the supreme court. >> it's being asked to decide whether as to whether or not congress can pass a law that treats same-sex couples who are already married under the laws of their state different from opposite sex couples. >> reporter: defenders of the law say congress has as much right as the states to make its own definition of marriage. >> doma is important because congress said it was important. i mean, we sent our elected representatives to washington, d.c., and they chose to say that marriage is one man and one woman for purposes of federal law. >> reporter: and conservatives say the founding fathers never contemplated gay marriage. >> because it's clearly not what anyone understood as marriage at the time of the framing of the constitution. >> reporter: still, same-sex families pay taxes and don't get the same benefit and the issue with doma really gets complicate federal they have children who are also excluded from benefits. >> when we have kids, i would like them to be born in a post-doma unit
senior adviser to president bill clinton. good to have you with us. it just seems like the other day. d.c. del washington times senior opinion editor. good to have you here. let's start with mayor bloomberg and the -- this is, i think, earmarked by the arrival of the american oligarchs. spending money, playing politics the you disagree? >> $12 million. said just a day, i think sometimes it's appropriate for the government to infringe and your freedoms. rsi "i thought, at least he's being honest. >> he made it clear that he said that he was talking about we will have the right. he put himself on another line as it will be in charge of our lives. >> well, i'll tell you. i know you saw my story. i was riding straight about spending to $0 million in 13 states. pressure senators to vote for gun-control legislation. i noticed in the ad that the actor they used at a singer on the trigger -- finger on the trigger. rule number one is never put your finger on the trigger until you're ready this year. i looked more closely and saw that he violates all three of the nra safety rules. finger on the t
? what is the purpose? if you understand that everything else falls in place. >> where clinton have to wrap it up because we're getting to 530 -- we are going to have to wrap it up because we're getting to 5:30. my questions about the marriage institution. way that yout, the look at the history of marriage institutions to me is not a science. it is not a cultural science. it is hypocrisy. the way you that you're saying if marriage social goal is to create more human beings, and why do we even let people who do not conceive of be married? you are not even let him be a bull or homosexual people to be married. ask them why we can help society? thing is the way your saturdays in our society duse just a man and women can get married to me it is the same not to a segregated society. based on what? are social goal of marriage is to reproduce -out- social a marriage history -- social goal is for marriage to reproduce? >> the time is up. we really need to get this down. to speak as to try quickly as possible. i have a lot of sympathy for mr. for letting it take its course. how deep into peop
it was enacted in the depression with roosevelt to 1999 when bill clinton and congress repealed it. >> well, i don't want to get into a dispute with you, bill. i think -- >> go right ahead, everybody else does. >> i think there was a long history of evasion. in other words ways were found in the '60s and '70s long before the repeal, ways were found by banks setting up investment banks, setting up new financial institutions to get around if not the letter then certainly the intent of that kind of regulation. when it was found possible politically first to weaken glass-steagall and then eventually to repeal it, well, that was even better. but basically the minute the regulation was set the regulated industries took it as a problem to be solved. then they hired the economists like me, the accountants, the lawyers and all the other specialists to figure out how to get around it. >> and armies of lobbyists, let's face it. >> armies of lobbyists to make sure that the laws get massaged and the rules get adjusted so that they can get around it. that's why we keep having financial scandal after financi
on countries that take our cash even as they tell us to leave. finally, see how she runs, hillary clinton's message on marriage equality fits her m.o. precisely, a scripted, polished dramatic video is just how she announced last time. looks like she is in. hi, i'm chris matthews, welcome to the show. with us today, the "washington post" david ignatius and kathleen parker. helene cooper and michael crowley. first up, what does barack obama know what we don't know pledging to use american power against iran and getting more deeply involved in syria? the american mood when it comes to using force feels like 1915, the end of vietnam. after that war, reluctance to commit power abroad was called vietnam syndrome. then came desert storm in 1991 and the first george bush told us that the lightning victory there had banished vietnam wearyness. >> it's a proud day for america and by god, we have kicked the vietnam syndrome once and for all. chris: after the second george bush launched two long wars, many feel war wearyness like against vietnam. against the wearyness, how should we take this week's
're back with our roundtable. i want to ask you about the politics. we saw hillary clinton preparing herself for the run coming out public publicly in support of gay marriage this week. when does the political calculus change? >> i don't think it will change. if you look at the exit polls that i alluded to earlier, three-quarters of obama voters said that they were for same sex marriage. three-quarters of romney voters said they were not. so there are people in the democratic party who, you know, support traditional marriage. i thought it was really interesting, by the way, this week. i thought it was politico went to a lot of the red state democratic senators on the ballot in 2014. people like mark prior of arkansas and others, mary landrieu in louisiana. they haven't changed their position. and i still think the republican party is going to remain a pro-family, pro-marriage, pro-life party. i don't think that will change. and if it does, by the way, i think the big tent will become a pup tent. if you look at the data, 44% of all the votes mitt romney got last november were from sel
saw it during the clinton administration. it's also about looking at how far we've come. if you actually look at what we've already done in terms of getting deficit under control, if you look at the budget control act, if you look at the tax increases from the end of last year, and all of the interest savings associated with that, we're actually two-thirds of the way to a grand bargain without the sequester. what we have in this country is not so much a deficit problem as a health care spending problem. inflation and health care spending has been a little bit compressed recently. over the long haul, that's the problem. that's why it's so disappointing that that's still an issue again and again to move forward on health care. >> haven't the republicans been successful in a sense, they've gotten washington to essentially only focus on deficit and debt. >> joy i want to read a quote from the "washington post" yesterday. president obama now finds himself enacting a broad public policy that he doesn't support and believes will harm the country. president of the economic policy instit
, hillary clinton at the end of the week. and we know the president's evolution on these issues related to doma. this was john lewis, 1996, talking about the civil right, the right of a human being to marry another. their there has been a long struggle for civil right for gay and lesbian people. and there were people early on who recognized this was a fundamental civil rights issue. the reason people are coming to that view is because of people coming out in their countries and whether it is john roberts or other people in the country realizing that they are brothers and sisters and cousins of people who are gay and lesbian. and it is inevitable. watching ralph reed with the most ridiculous argument i've ever heard of the many ridiculous arguments against gay marriage. he's arguing the only reason people get player sid to have children. people get married because they want to be in a loving, committed relationship with each other. there is no reason that fundamental right should be denied. >> to steve's point, ralph reed was not discussing the lawful he is talking about religion and emo
passed gay marriage in 1993, president clinton decided to make sure that each state -- again, larry, states' rights -- that washington intervene and say states have the right to not recognize marriages if the people in that state don't believe in that. this has always been a fact. the other thing, "the wall street journal" made a very important point in their very strong editorial today, saying the supreme court should really hold against these two cases. they said, how can you tell millions of americans that they're deeply held moral beliefs are bigotry. >> do we want a legal, judicial decision here, or do you want a political decision? >> right. zb we just got a political decision in the obama health care case, and roe v. wade was also a political decision, which they wanted the right, it was an incorrect decision. >> the right to marry is fundamental. the constitution of the supreme court has repeatedly recognized that. the idea that you can't compare that to loving versus virginia, kelly ann, is wrong because the issue is about marriage. the issue is about marriage, and the cour
in this country has been so dramatic and strong on this, we are seeing ceos, hillary clinton, republican senators, republican members of congress, ken melman, ex-republican chair, talked about gay marriage and opposition now being for gay marriage. the court can't ignore how strong the movement in the country, pretty much everyone below 30 is for gay marriage. hard to imagine they'll buck those trends and somehow come against gay marriage. >> it brings me back to the original premise, whether or not some of these folks, whether with their money or megaphone have an opportunity to really influence the conversation, one lone individual, and i am thinking in this case about mark zuckerberg who we mentioned at the top. he has a big vested interest in this, not the only one in silicon valley or tech industries saying we need the best and brightest wherever they're from. it seems like a natural extension that he would be a part of this, that his initial foray into heavy politics would be immigration. can someone like that make a difference? >> it definitely makes sense why you see this kind of growing
? >> they've got a long memory but if hillary colin con couldn't negotiate this -- if hillary clinton couldn't negotiate this, i don't think john kerry will be able to deliver anything differently. that status of force agreement was critical. i think we should remember this when we are dabbling in whether or not to have a long-term presence and influence in afghanistan, the problem is iraq is that much more important. it is strategically more significant and we let it slip away. >>brian: after all that hard work and sacrifice. thanks so much. 17 after the hour. thanks for joining us this morning. >>> remember those shovel-ready projects? why are we now paying for a gas tax? fox business's charles payne is here telling us where that money is going. >> it was the ad no one was supposed to see. supposed to see. now ford is under fire. what's droid-recognition ? understanding you clearly... what is the capital of zimbabwe ? ... the first time you ask with the google voice search. the droid razr maxx hd by motorola. droid recognition. droid powerful. mommy's having a french fry. yes she is, yes s
to today's team. richard socarides, former senior adviser to president clinton now a writer for newyorker.com. former congressman connie mack and former member of congress, mary bono mack from california. they know each other. thanks, guys, for coming in. >> thank you. >> 28 minutes after the hour. security is tight today for a public memorial for colorado's prison chief. that's because there's a lot of question about what or who may have motivated his killer. >> that's right, tom clements was laid to rest yesterday in a private funeral. he was shot and killed tuesday in his driveway. police believe 28-year-old white supremacist and parolee evan spencer ebel pulled the trigger. he was killed thursday in a shoot-out in texas. it's not clear if he acted alone. jim spellman is in colorado springs. officials there are taking no chances with so many high profile public officials in one place today, are they? >> absolutely not. the fear is tom clements was murdered potentially as part of a conspiracy or a hit guided by somebody in this white supremacist prison gang that evan ebel allegedly was

, a former ambassador to n.a.t.o. and secretary under president clinton and now you've got president obama morsi discussing the collapse of egypt. and that's something we don't want over here and that's one of the reasons we're keeping an eye over there. >> i don't see the prospect of the state collapsing, but i think that morsi's actions showed why people feared having a muslim brotherhood government in power, that it would be a one person, one vote, one time experience, and i have to say, the fact that the military so far is silent, could indicate they're prepared to acquiesce in this. although people have said that the brotherhood and the military could never come to an agreement on rule in egypt. i've always believed that's a possibility. so i think this is very, very serious and it's one reason i favor suspending both economic and military aid to egypt until this gets resolved. >> rick, where is this going? because you know, they got rid of hosni mubarak out there because he was dictatorial and ruled with an iron fist and wanted something more akin to democracy and now you've fot pres
there with quickly questioning paul's math there mentioning that bill clinton, of course, did not inhale. >>> some adventure seekers getting way too close for comfort with some great white sharks off the coast of south africa. take a look, folks. this is just like a scene out of -- >> whoa! whoa! >> oh, my gosh! >> the tourists thought they were inside that shark cage as great whites just checked out the bait dangling outside of the barge. but one shark skipped that bait got straight in towards the divers. his entire head went inside the cage, narrowly missing two divers. as frightening as this looks nobody got hurt and the man who shot that incredible video brian plumber will be our guest in the eight clock hour eastern time on "starting point." you heard the unbleeped version. >> it's sort of fantastic. words that i've never heard before. 18 minutes after the hour right now. even if you are not washing in on the stock market you could be feeling the effects of gas prices this morning. christine romans shows us where both are headed. coming up next. i'm a conservative investor. but that doesn't m
support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. >> stephanie: thank you, hillary clinton. hurrah! six minutes after the hour. it is "the stephanie miller show." we welcome live in studio with us representative mark takano, one of the newest openly gay members of congress. >> good morning, stephanie. glad to be here. >> stephanie: thank you for taking time for us. here's the thing where i think is real progress. i got to hang out o with senator tammy baldwin at the inauguration. i loved that in her race and i think probably in yours it wasn't an issue anymore. nobody brought up sexual orientation. >> it was very much in the background and funny thing is the people who are most interested were liberal journalists like you. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: i'm just titillated by the whole thing. >> we've had several stories about when i ran 20 years ago and when i ran this time around and so a lot of the stories were about that. typically, you know, the more progressive. >> stephanie: you know what's interesting is i think it has become -- nonpartisan issue. i wouldn't say bipartisan, would yo
